Re: FL QSO

Mike Olbrisch
 

Well, that only works if the station you are filling the blanks for was actually at the location shown on QRZ.  When I operate portable (and I do that a lot), I am careful to match my LoTW upload to the country-state-county-grid-CQ zone-ITU zone I am at.  And most people who work me know I am portable.

 

I hate to question this because I think it is going to have to be Scott who answers.  But what happens in this situation?  For example, I operate from a mountaintop at the McDonald Observatory.   My position: Country = USA, State = TEXAS, County = JEFF DAVIS, Grid = DM70xq.  That is what I upload to LoTW.

 

Someone who worked me just accepted the QRZ data pushed down to them about KD5KC.  That is: Country = USA, State = TEXAS, County = EL PASO, Grid = DM61rt. 

 

When the confirmed QSO is later downloaded from LoTW, and my portable location is what I uploaded, does AC-Log change the county from EL PASO to JEFF DAVIS, and the grid from DM61rt to DM70xq?  Or does it leave the data pushed from QRZ?

 

I am very meticulous to get it right in my LoTW uploads.  That’s why I have nearly 100 portable locations registered in LoTW.  I am also very meticulous to get it right when I work another portable station too.

 

I wonder if there is an easy way to test this?

It is easier than you think. after you import the adif file back into AClog then you can do this

this will fill all the counties

Thanks Scott… 

 

Sorry, I didn’t mention I will be participating as a Florida station – you’re correct - Florida stations announce their county but receive only the state ID from the non-FL station during the exchange.  When contacting another FL station the “FL Cnty” field in the software opens so I can manually enter the FL county.  That all works great!  The county info I would like to capture is from the state other than FL.  I don’t see any opportunity to enter that info even if it’s offered by the station outside FL.  I would like to capture that information if possible in case I run across a county not in my log.  It’s not a problem but would be a nice feature in a future release.

I have installed the current version of the FL QSO software.  I notice there is a column  “County R” but it does not update when a call is entered.  This software unlike my Contact Log does not have the “CallBook” tab to specify a path to fetch this info.  I’m sure this is not required for the FL QSO Party but I hate to miss a county I have not yet worked.  Can the software populate this field?

Hi Wayne,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I am running a 7610 here and it works fine.  The trick is to make sure you have the Icom drivers properly installed on your PC, before connecting your 7610 to your PC, as detailed on the Icom site.  Once you have your Icom drivers properly installed, you'll find the successful settings for the 7610 here:

Re: Changing CW Speed

Scott Davis
 

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The other possibility is an outdated OS driver, so you might take a look at that as well.

By the way, when everything is working right, it is not necessary to press F12 to changed speeds.  Just pressing the Up / Down arrow keys will do the tick.

I use Full Break in and it keys, however the speed is stuck around 13 WPM no matter what I try. I can use my internal CW key method on the rig or my Bencher as well. If I'm calling DX it would have been nice to be able to adjust to their speed from ACLog, but certainly not the end of the world. I've considered getting a WinKeyer, for things like CW but also for FSK RTTY keying as well, even though that is also built into the ICOM 7300. If the computer CPU bogs down then sometimes it affects my CW generated keying, that's why I've considered getting it.

Re: Changing CW Speed

K4GM-George
 

Scott, I use VOX to key cw on my IC-7300.  I have used the ACLog cw generator but switched to a winkeyer a  while back to avoid occasional hangups in my pc causing erratic  code.   I adjust speed by hitting F12 and then running up and down on my arrow keys until the speed picks up. Once it starts working right  I can operate hours w/o any issues. Just up and down with arrow keys to adjust speed.    one or two iterations ago the program started sending at a speed well below the number showing when first started.    But I found that by running it up to about 30 wpm or so and then down all the way would set it right.  Then I  set the speed to 25 wpm for casual operation .  Good luck.

Re: LoTW freezes \

Mike Olbrisch
 

There it is!   You just changed monitors.

 

We’ve experienced that issue at work.  While rebooting and moving the monitors around between system operators shift changes, a power plug falls out and a monitor goes dead, and the programs don’t like it.  Often takes plugging the monitor back in and another reboot.

 

This is what I would try.  If you still have the older monitors, put them back on line, determine which is the primary monitor, and drag the programs to it.  Then put in the new monitors and move stuff around.  Of course, someone may have a better idea.

 

Good luck with that.
